Tune: In 1992, dada released a song called “Dizz Knee Land.” Yeah. You remember it. Most assume dada was a one-hit wonder. But, as usual, most are wrong. The band is still alive and kicking. A few years back, dada released “A Friend Of Pat Robertson” – better than any of its previous offerings, I believe.

Gallimaufry: I’m always a big fan when someone I know jumps into the blogosphere. Check out my buddy Kevin’s new blog, The Thoughts Inside My Head. Intelligent guy with many unique ideas.  Make no mistake about it – I’m not a huge of fan of all these movie remakes and revisitations. There is one, however, that I’m getting firmly behind – TRON: Legacy. The Jeff Bridges classic is being remastered in 3-D and is slated for release sometime next year. If you’re one of those who likes his factual information to be entertaining as well, you should check out Cracked.com. Seriously. I’m completely sure it’s the best website out there. If you’re a big fan of wasting inordinate amounts of time while also learning something, check out some of Cracked’s articles like, “The 6 Greatest Battlefield Mindfucks,” or, “6 Insane Discoveries That Science Can’t Explain,” or, “7 True Stories That Prove The Airlines Hate You.” It is literally hours of knowledge you won’t figure out until much later is pretty much useless.
